The Order of the Great Diesis is an independent organization of like-minded individuals who are dedicated
to the development and application of transformative technologies. There is no hierarchy in our organization as
"grades" are based solely on degree of participation and not adherence to creeds, codes, or successfully completed
levels of attainment. We support the aims and goals of all scientific, philosophical, and religious works that attempt
to unify rather than separate.
The essence of our mission is revealed in our name and logo. The Great Diesis is a ratio that bridges the gap between the physical and spiritual worlds...the respective domains of time and vibration, whose difference is best expressed in music theory. Whereas western music scales are conveniently "tempered" to make the octave double in frequency with each progression for ease of use, the natural octave of the universal rhythm does not exactly do so...it comes up short by a tiny fraction known as the Great Diesis...a small ratio mathematically expressed as 125:128.
Humans measure vibrations in waves per second, but these seconds are arbitrary segments of time not based on any natural phenomenon. However, the Great Diesis, provides a perfectly natural time base because of its observable ability to resolve the harmonic octave. Utilizing the Great Diesis as a whole number ratio, all of the truly harmonic partials (overtones) of any complex vibration can be sorted, collected, measured, and compared, providing a much more accurate way of searching for harmonic content. The Great Diesis as a "fundamental frequency" serves as the keynote that originates and unifies all of the diverse but harmonically related overtones of the vibrational spectrum. Therefore, it is a number that not only ties together each of our parts, but also all of us together in the universal rhythm. It is the universal second that unifies the whole with all of its parts.
The Great Diesis also allows for smooth transition between the temporal and spectral domains and resolves differentials between analog and digital processing. While all human action takes place in the temporal domain of relative time, all possible outcomes of such action are concealed within the spectral domain of frequency and relative vibration. The Great Diesis facilitates transition between these two reality domains and provides a foundation for the various products and services we offer around the world.
The roots of the word Diesis come from both Greek and Latin and means..."to let go, send through, or release". Musicians have traditionally used the double dagger logo to notate a resolution of the tension created because of the "stretch" required to make the octave resolve perfectly. Our use of it implies our desire to help others release the tension created in their lives because things don't always come together like they want...to resolve the differences between their actual and potential selves...and to send through or stretch them to higher and more complex levels of order, unity, and purity, the essence of holiness.
The Order of the Great Diesis maintains this educational and interactive website, which provides forums for discussion and functions as a clearinghouse for information about, research on, and resourcing of transformational technologies.
